The Hague Linker joins the seams of knitted garments such as sleeves, body, collars, bands etc and can also be used for decorative linking. The Hand Crank Hague Linker allows you to to feel if the needle is getting into a bind on the knitted materials. The Electric Hague Linker is more apt to bind or break a needle because of the unfelt power of the motor. Both have instructions in the manual for releasing a bind without removing covers or oiling inside.

Silver Reed SK840 is 4.5mm between needles. Hague Linker D280E has 7 points/in which is 3.63mm between points. They do not have to match since the  SK840 tension dial, pattern and yarn weight will determine the actual distance between stitches.Uniform linking for seams can still be accomplished regardless of the distance between needles or the distance between stitches, just like sewing machine stitches can on different thread count fabrics.   http://www.b-hague.co.uk/pdf/Linker%20Gauge.pdf  Choosing a suitable linker for my knitting machineThe Hague D280 Linking Machine is available in 3 different gauges, standard 7pt, fine 10pt, and fine 12pt.D001 - HAGUE D280H HAND LINKERD002 - HAGUE D280E ELECTRIC LINKERBoth these linkers are Standard Gauge and have 7 Points per inch (25mm), and are suitable for all standardgauge knitting machines, such as all Brother Standard Gauge Punch Card & Electronic Machines KH830, 836,840, 860, 864, 869, 881, 890, 891, 900, 910, 940, 950, 950i, 965, 965i & 970.

Theswatch edges affect the reading of the gauge, so it's best that the swatch be at least 4" square. Then remove itfrom the machine and place it on the table, now using a ruler count the number of stitches per 1 inch / 25mm,this is the stitch gauge of the sample. You can then choose the linker with the nearest number of points per 1” /25mm, which would be the most suitable for your machine.Unfortunately we no longer make a Chunky gauge domestic linker, but if you are knitting on a chunky/bulkyknitting machine, or hand knitting, you can still join the seams together on our standard gauge linker, but youwill have to use a thinner yarn of the same colour (no thicker than a 4ply) to join the seams. You can also linkopen stitches by placing them on alternate points.www.haguedirect.co.ukHague DistributionUnit E2 Trent Park Trading Estate, Little Tennis Street South, Nottingham. NG2 4EU

Hi John, Thank you for getting in touch, although I am sorry to hear about the unexpected and unfortunate slight difficulties that your customer is currently experiencing with their Hague Linking machine. I would like to reassure you and your customer that all of our products must pass a strict quality control procedure, which includes a full testing process, before being dispatched to our customers.

I think from the sound of how the problem/s have been described that it will initially be worth trying some remote assistance. I think it’s likely that with a little assistance, the machine should be able to be back up and running correctly without a service. However it is difficult to know for sure without being able to physically see the machine, so I cannot say this with absolute certainty.

We are happy to try and help. It may be a good idea for you and your customer to have a look at the helpful documents section on our website. You’ll find frequently asked questions and answers, helpful articles, instructions and videos all exclusive to us on our website. If you’ve not yet been here, please find a direct link to this below, this may help you now and/or in the future:

Firstly, I would recommend realigning the needle. Please follow the process below with reference to the Linker Instruction Manual on changing the needle (I have attached this document to this email to help).

Please check that the needle is set in the Linker correctly and that you have the correct Needle for your machine. Do not change any looper settings or the needle bar square at this stage.

Now, please put the needle into the needle bar square. Put the needle in upside down, and then turn it 180 degrees.

When the needle is as far out as possible, the tip of the needle must be set level with the end of a point in the point ring. Gently tighten the needle, so it grips the needle, but not super tight. When you start to turn the handle, the needle must go straight down the centre of the point, so as the needle goes inwards, ensure it definitely goes straight down the groove of the point. When you’ve definitely got the needle straight, tighten it up, and be very careful that the needle doesn’t move whilst you tighten it up. You may need to gently hold the needle when tightening.

Once you’ve tightened it up, please re-check that it is still set straight.

Turn the handle clockwise, so that the needle is now right in, the needle should be fractionally above the looper (about a half of a millimetre). As the looper starts to rise, the looper should graze the needle, slightly touching the side of the needle so as to pick up the yarn. If the looper does not touch the needle, then the machine could miss a stitch as it won’t pick up the yarn. This may be indicating that the needle is not set straight.

It may also help to watch the video for changing the Needle on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/3-BWS98NVDY

After you have done this, if the machine is still not operating correctly, it may be worth checking the Ratchet Springs. I would only do this once you have realigned the needle and only if it still isn’t operating right. Please find attached the instructions detailing how to check the Ratchet Springs.

I hope all of this information helps, as I’ve said, I don’t think from the sound of how the problem/s have been described that it is in need of major work, however it is difficult to know for sure without being able to physically see the machine. Kind Regards, Jake
Janet, Missouri
